“Criticism can be, and many times is a powerful deterrent against goodness, truth, and sometimes is damaging to sound facts, theory, and obligations.
Criticism is many times based on jealousy, and/or wrong interpretation.

Criticism when it is ‘constructive’ and done with ‘no’ malice, anger or self-love, can be an act of sincerity, concern, and welcomed.
Jealousy many times manifests itself through biased criticism, or unjust criticism, due to a tremendous ego, insecurity, and/or a total lack of self-confidence.
Jealousy can be dangerous.”
